Answering Seattle's 24-Hour Crisis Line
More people now die of suicide than in car accidents. In 2010, 38,364 suicide deaths were reported in the United States. Many say suicide is still underreported. September is suicide prevention awareness month and today The Record is taking a look at Seattle's Crisis Clinic, where volunteers staff a 24-hour crisis line. They take calls from people thinking about suicide and others who need help. Ross Reynolds talks with Crisis Clinic's director of crisis services, Michael Reading.
